Reese Witherspoon got hitched March 26 to entertainment agent Jim Toth in front of family members, friends — and a bunch of horses, chickens and pigs.
The 35-year-old chose to have her second wedding (she divorced actor Ryan Phillippe in 2006) at her six-acre Ojai, Calif., ranch. In a 2009 interview
, she said she purchased the property just outside Los Angeles because it reminded her of her childhood in Tennessee. "We have chickens and we grow cucumbers and tomatoes. I love it."
In fact, Reese has so many chickens that she's earned the nickname "Chicken Lady" from many of her neighbors and friends. "The chickens are laying more eggs than she can eat, so Reese started giving eggs away to her neighbors, parents on the kids' soccer team and all her friends," said a source last year
Perhaps eggs were part of the wedding favors?
Celebrities in attendance included Renée Zellweger, Salma Hayek, Sean Penn, Scarlett Johansson, Tobey Maguire, Robert Downey Jr. and others. Congrats to Reese and Jim!
